and any population control is inhumane, immoral, and unnecessary.

Does that include abstinence?

Even though many populations are slowly declining and leveling off, and any population control is inhumane, immoral, and unnecessary.


It is necessary in nations where the birth rate is rocketing, without an adequate social structure to support them.

Only let each family have a maximum of 2 or 3 children especially in rural areas as they dont know about family planning

The fastest way, but this would also destroy the planet and is currently impossible is to push the earth into the sun.

Just leave things as they are, eventually we will kill everything on this planet and ourselves.

Don't want to give more serious answers, as you could be a super villain.

All countries but 3 have signed an agreement of getting rid of their nuclear weapons.

The 3 are Iran, Saudi Arabia and North Korea.

Epidemic outbreak?
China has the largest population of the world and is actually facing a population crysis. The average age of the population is going up because they are not producing enough children so soon in the future there will be a massive decrease in its population which almost regulates itself.

For awhile china had a 1 child policy. Due to this there was a greater number of males born than females. Not a coincidence most woman would abort female fetus has when having a male they would be better workers also to carry on their names.This makes it harder for males to find a woman to marry and settle down. So each male has to complete with each other and the most richest got picked. This is a sexist view yes but that was the view at the time.

Now they have relaxed the one child rule so you can have 2 now. Also a large amount of women business owners in China. Their population today is 1.3bil, this will be the same by 2050. India will pass China in population by 2030 if India doesn't do something. They are at 1.1bil today. "050 will be at 1.7Billion

There is a huge population problem in Asian countries the worst would probably be Bangladesh. It is the size of of England and Wales combined. With a population of 150million. That makes it 8th most populous and one of the highest densities. By 2050 it will have almost 200Million.

Yeah, Russia and America are not going to turn over their nuclear weapons or shut down the program. It's not going to happen. We both want our little "ace in the hole," and the ability to turn an entire country into a toxic wasteland is a pretty good ace.

I mean, think about it. The U.S. government is already monitoring its own country as closely as possible without getting yelled at. You think they trust other countries (especially communist countries) to obey the rules when they don't trust their own citizens?

Besides, just knowing that Iran and NK may end up developing nuclear capabilities is a good reason to NOT throw yours away. Surveillance on the Middle East shows that they aren't slowing down their work on nukes, and we already know that we're not going to talk our way out of a fight with them. I wouldn't want to disarm my country if I was the president if for no other reason than to keep us from being inferior to hostile nations.

...War. Lots of war. But seriously, the "best" way, (Definitely not humane) would be to kill useless people, based on their skills. I'm not advocating this, nor do I think it's something that should be done, but the most efficient and "best" way would be exterminating people. There would be a court, with a jury of their peers, where people would be asked questions, and their efficiency in life. Other suggestions would be laws about the amount of children, or killing criminals more often. We could also have gladiatorial games between prisoners, like the Romans did. Again, not advocating any of this, just answering the OP's question.


This, but then all of Mexico's population would be gone x).

Nigeria is the one we should be worried about. Right now the population is about 168 million, but in 2050 it's projected to reach 390 million. This country is a little over twice the size of California in area.

I left out Africa as it already has many problems. There is little we can do to stop population explosion in these countries.It isn't the worst yet. In other countries though we can prevent the problem with population control. It is needed other wise in 2050 the world population will be 9.7 Billion.

Coming from one who has lived in Mexico, I denounce this is an incredibly stupid statement.

Well, the original requirements for this discussion were "Any answers hopefully humane and by unpopulate i mean lower human populations."

So reduce the number of humans in a humane way. That rules out nuclear warfare, as the radiation left behind is brutal and will slowly kill anyone infected that wasn't vaporized by the initial blast. "War" is not exactly humane by generic definition. Gladiator-type events where humans (or animals, elements and machines) kill humans is not humane, as it will probably leave the survivor mentally scarred, and straight-up genocide is definitely out of the question.

Maybe it could be a "Half-Life 2" scenario, where a building called "The Citadel" projects an energy field that is able to prevent human reproduction. Currently non-existent, but as a concept it is a painless way of reducing the human population in a slower, non-violent method. Rather than eliminating a chunk of humanity in bloodshed, blocking reproduction would lower human populations rather quickly. It could be moderated by placing a Citadel in specific cities, slowing growth in one place while allowing it to continue elsewhere so as to not erase human existence completely.

Plus, it would allow people to live normally. Men and women would still be able to sleep with each other. They would just be incapable of having a child. Then again, morality would probably have to be reconsidered, since the amount of premarital intercourse would skyrocket. But in regard to lowering population in a humane way, this method qualifies.
